Detroit Mayor's Deputy Arrested
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's press secretary
has been charged with domestic violence assault and resisting and
obstructing arrest following an argument with his wife.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says 42-year-old Matt Allen
was arrested in the early morning hours at the couple's Detroit
home by police responding to a 911 call.
Worthy says a woman identifying herself as Allen's wife told
police he shoved her into a wall.
The domestic violence charge is a misdemeanor. The other charge
is a felony.
Defense attorney Richard Steinberg calls the allegations
"greatly exaggerated" and says Allen is expected to be arraigned
in the afternoon.
Deputy Press Secretary James Canning says Allen's arrest is a
personal matter and that Kilpatrick would have no comment.
